  View across the village square, Houghton, Huntingdonshire (Cambridgeshire), England   Houghton.

This is the little village square called 'The Green' together with its clock tower. It probably was a green at one time but there's no sign of grass now.

This view is seen from the top end of Mill Street looking towards the house with the Hollyhocks shown above. Part of the crooked house, shown below, can be seen on the right.
